Charles' best friend from medical school is Aaron Purdy. Recently Aaron and his sweet wife Samantha had a baby girl (Sophia). This past weekend we meet the Purdy's in Austin at their condo on Lake Travis. Sophia and Emma meet for the first time and I am sure as the years go by they will be fast friends! Thank you Purdy family for a great weekend to relax and spend some quality time together! Love you guys!!

There is a place we love to go and that place is called Camp Creek! My Aunt and Uncle have this great home on lake Camp Creek where TV, radio and phones are not allowed. It forces us all the talk, read and play games with each other which is such a nice change of pace! We have been going there during the summer for a far back as I can remember and this year Emma and I made an appearance. We had a great time swimming, painting, reading, feeding deer and laughing! Here are some pictures from our week.

Charles' mother has three sisters and one brother. Each year they have a girl's weekend with the sister's, sister-in-law and daughters of the moms. This was my first year to attend and it was so great! We meet up in Spring, TX right outside of Houston at Aunt Shirley's home and swam, played games and shopped in the older part of Spring! I had a great time with the girls laughing til my side hurt! Thanks girls for the great weekend!
My sister-in-law came down for a few days and was able to spend the fourth with Charles, Emma and I. We went to the annual City of Richardson fireworks show. So many people attend each year that they have a shuttle system that takes people to and from their cars... we decided this was a great idea until the end of the evening. We quickly realized that everyone else was shuttled to the park and there were a sea of thousands waiting for a ride after the show. So we decided to make the 3 1/2 mile walk at 10:30 pm. Quite the adventure with an 18 month old!
